  • binutils (2.15-5ubuntu2.2) hoary-security; urgency=low
    
    
      * Removed the additional checks from 500_security_bfd_overflow.dpatch since
        it broke compilers. (Ubuntu #11249)

  • binutils (2.15-5ubuntu2) hoary; urgency=low
    
    
      * debian/rules: Call pkgstriptranslations if present (the package does not
        use debhelper, thus it does not happen automatically).
